react-rewards

Reward your users for little things and make them smile.

Usage

Why should I even use that? Read my blog post and you will know – https://www.thedevelobear.com/post/microinteractions/

Install from npm by typing npm install react-rewards or yarn add react-rewards while in your package.json directory.

This package lets you easily add microinteractions to your app and reward users with the rain of confettis or flying emoji in seconds. In order to make it rain, you need to wrap your button of choice with the <Reward> component, fire the rewardMe() method from the refs and voilà. You can also "punish" the user by calling the punishMe() method and showing him that something went wrong.

react-rewards demo

import Reward from 'react-rewards';

// in render
<Reward
  ref={(ref) => { this.reward = ref }}
  type='emoji'
>
  <button onClick={this.fetchSomeData} />
</Reward>

// in fetchSomeData:
// to reward a user with confetti/emoji rain:
this.reward.rewardMe();
// to "punish" user :
this.reward.punishMe();
